Tennis player, changemaker, and entrepreneur NAOMI OSAKA and denim brand LEVI’S presented their second collaboration, that was inspired by two sides of Osaka’s personality – fierce competitor and gentle person. The Spring Summer 2022 collection includes five new denim pieces, each based on the original sketches by Osaka. The looks feature contrasting denim washes and creative plays on proportion.
I wanted to keep this collection fun and playful, and also include some pieces for everyone. I was trying to bring some light-heartedness with this collection as a reminder for us all to enjoy the life we’re living and not take things too seriously. Best of all, these pieces all make me feel super confident and comfortable because they’re all so flattering and fun to wear – Naomi Osaka
“Included is a cascading Mermaid Skirt featuring contrasting denim and a ruffled, high-low hemline that makes for a short skirt on one side and a maxi skirt on the other. There’s also the Denim Halter Top, a streamlined light-wash denim halter, perfect for playing off the volume of the Mermaid Skirt, or even better, the oversized Artist Coat – a mid-length, wide-sleeved, drop-shoulder coat featuring big patch pockets (with a Red Tab and arcuate stitching, of course) and contrasting mid and light-wash denim. Each of these pieces are made with 100 percent organically grown cotton. Rounding out the collection is a cropped and puffed up Zip Bomber Jacket – also made from 100 percent organically grown cotton – with contrasting denim (the bottom half of which features a laser print of Naomi’s flower-bear logo) and elasticated cuffs and hem. Finally, there’s the flower-bear laser print ’93 Naomi Jean, based off of a men’s 501® Jean for that perfect slouchy fit.” – from Levi’s
